Hafnarfjördur football club FH became the Icelandic champion in men’s football on Saturday with a 2-0 victory over Fylkir from Reykjavík. FH were the stronger team throughout the match having taken an early lead in the first seconds of the game.
At the same time that FH and Fylkir were meeting in Fylkir’s home stadium at Árbaer, FC Keflavík was playing against Reykjavík’s Fram. Keflavík was at the top of the league before the semi-finals, but their loss against Fram secured FH the championship title, Fréttabladid reports.
“It is a great feeling and hard to describe,” said FH’s manager Heimir Gudjónsson. “First and foremost I’m proud of these players who showed an exceptionally good character. They played three games in seven days and won them all.”
FH’s goal scorers were Matthías Vilhjálmsson and Gudmundur Saevarsson, both in the second half of the game.
